Ubuntu :: Stop An UDF From Auto Mounting?

Jul 10, 2011

I have one of those lovely Western Digital external hard drives and it seems to have an UDF "partition" on the hard drive itself. I cannot format it, remove it from the hard drive itself, or disabling the UDF seems to be a no go once its popped into a Linux distribution of any kind.

So my question is, is it possible to stop the UDF from even auto mounting at all?

System
Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat

Ubuntu :: Auto Run (auto Exec) A Script On Mounting A Device?

Mar 16, 2010

I would like to exec a script whenever a user mount a device. The device could be an internal device (for example a partition on a second hard disk) or a removable one (for example a usb hard disk). The script must have sudo capabilities even if the user is not included in the admin group. Is it possible?

The specific question:
I would like to add acl option to a device whenever it is mounted.
I tried fstab but it's changing the behaviour of nautilus see:

[URL]... so I would like to create a script with the command

Code:
sudo mount -o remount,acl /media/data
and auto execute it any time data is mounted.

Fedora :: Auto Mounting Hard Drives?

Aug 10, 2009

I have a fresh installation of Fedora 11 and I am having a hard time figuring out how to automount my storage drives. Each time I login, I try to access my various storage drives and gnome makes me authenticate asroot before mounting it. FSTAB lists only logical volumes but not my storage drives. What can I do to make sure these automount when I login?

Fedora :: USB Drives No Longer Auto Mounting?

Sep 16, 2010

I know this problem was mentioned here before but because I could not find a straight forward solution anywhere I am reposting this here. So here goes.As of today, my Fedora 13 64-bit has ceased to auto-mount USB drives completely. I have made absolutely no changes to the system and I am completely baffled and frustrated by this sudden development. I desperately need this system to function properly as I use it for school and this really put a wrench in my works, especially since I have done nothing to cause this. I assume that one of the many recent updates that have been released must have done this, but I have absolutely no idea how to fix this. Why do Fedora developers release updates that cripple a perfectly functioning system is beyond me and crap like this really makes me consider switching back to Ubuntu.

Fedora :: Argument Against Auto-mounting Of Other Partitions?

Apr 14, 2011

I boot several Redhat based distributions, Fedora 15, Fedora 14, CentOS, Scientific Linux, Redhat and occasionally something non-Redhat based like Ubuntu and Debian. Out of habit and preference I frequently set up partitions to be auto mounted at boot through fstab. Somewhere in time something went seriously wrong with the CentOS install. There are a ton of permission denied errors while booting CentOS (text style boot) mostly regarding shared libraries. The system will boot to the desktop and everything looks OK but some things don't work. I can't update the system because I have no network connection. I obviously can't get to the Internet or get e-mail. I can open a VT but can't log in as regular user or root.

Permission denied in both instances. I didn't make any drastic changes to the CentOS system, just minor tweaks. The culprit in my opinion is a combination of the fact that one of the other Linux systems did an SELinux relabel while booting and the CentOS partition was already mounted. Since the CentOS partition was mounted it too was relabeled. I can't prove this. If there's a way to prove it then I just don't have the skills or knowledge to do so. It's basically a theory based on what I know I've done with the several installed distributions. This is not a rant nor is it a request for help. Just a comment. An assumption, hopefully a correct assumption. The CentOS install was working flawlessly until something happened and I think that something was the SELinux relabel.

Fedora Hardware :: How To Stop Xorg.Conf Auto Generation

Apr 2, 2010

I am on a Fedora 12 box, and it's my job to do some custom configs to xorg.conf. To start this, I have to remove a bunch of devices' entries and modify others. We're using the proprietary Nvidia drivers, and they work fine except that something - perhaps the NVIDIA X Server Settings app - keeps modifying the xorg.conf. After I write a change to see if it will work or break the machine, I have to restart the entire computer, as restarting X by itself blanks out the monitor so that I can't even see a virtual console. After the restart, X starts just fine and goes into GNOME, but as soon as I look at the xorg.conf, everything I've removed or commented out from the original, auto-generated file has reappeared. How to stop this infuriating behavior so that I can rewrite xorg.conf and make the changes stick?

Fedora :: FC15 Stop Gnome From Turning Screen Off?

Jun 5, 2011

Under Gnome2 you were able to stop the OS from turning off the screen by selecting "never" as the time to turn off the display when the computer was idle. This was found under the screensaver configuration.The screen tool for Gnome3 does not offer "never" as an option. Does anyone know how to stop Fedora 15/Gnome 3 from turning off the display?

Fedora :: FC15 Gnome 3 - How To Stop Screen From Blanking

Sep 2, 2011

How do I stop the display from turning off? In 'System Settings/Screen', I can only choose from a preset range of minutes - there is no option to disable it. Very annoying when watching a 90 minute movie, for instance. At least under FC14 I had the disable option. I tried unchecking Power Manager in gnome-session-properties, but that disabled the system from suspending when the laptop lid is closed and might have other ramifications as well. I tried disabling Screensaver in gnome-session-properties, but 'System Settings/Screen' still showed up with the same options, so it appears to be unrelated. Anyway, I suspect this is a power management issue, not a screensaver issue.

Ubuntu :: Can't Stop The Auto-login

Aug 29, 2010

I was going through some settings and inadvertently changed the UID for my primary logon. I then realized what I did and changed it back and set the group back to my username.Since then, it only auto-logs in on startup. I cannot get it to prompt for a password again. I've tried normal things like changing "ask for password on login" and then changing it back, but that hasn't helped. I'm sure there's something else that I'm missing, but don't know what it is. Right now, it says "asked on login" but it doesn't.

Ubuntu :: Prevent IPod Auto Mounting

Jan 16, 2010

I currently run a Windows XP virtual machine (using VirtualBox) so that I can use iTunes. This is fine, and I have set up a USB device filter which allows me to use my iPod, and update it via iTunes on the VM. However, this only works sometimes. I think the reason is that the VM sometimes can't get access to the iPod because it's mounted in Ubuntu - I think it may just be a race for who can mount it first - Ubuntu or the VM, when I plug it in. Is there a way I can prevent the iPod from automounting in Ubuntu so this problem (hopefully) won't arise?

Ubuntu :: SMB Suddenly Stopped Auto Mounting?

May 3, 2010

I have my "documents" folder pointing to a Samba share on a 9.10 server. (Client is 64 bit 9.10). In /etc/fstab I have

Code:
//192.168.20.102/sean/Documents /home/sean/Documents cifs credentials=/home/sean/.smbcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000

This always used to mount automatically and has suddenly stopped. Same result if I use smbfs instead of cifs. I have worked around this by adding noauto and then mounting it in /etc/rc.local.

Anyone else had this and fixed it so that the share mounts at boot rather than login. I do have some cron tasks that require this to be mounted and assume they will fail unless I login immediately after a reboot.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Not Auto-mounting Network Shares?

May 4, 2010

Enviroment:

-server ubuntu 9.04 with samba
-client fresh ubuntu 10.04

ubuntu is not auto-mounting samba shares. Old 9.04 done it without a problem. I need to type sudo mount -a to have samba mounted.

fstab:
//192.168.1.101/www /mokonawww cifs auto,iocharset=utf8 0 0
ls -l
drwxrwxrwx 25 root root 0 2010-05-03 17:44 mokonawww

Tested with diffrent parameters. And another problem also with samba shares, when I edit file from editor (eclipse) after save i got 'file changed dialog'. seems like file is written with some delay ? and timestamp dont agree (its my blind quess). On 9.04 no problems. Tested with 2 instances of Eclipse. One copied from 9.04 and second fresh install. Other editors raport the same problem. Its anoying as hell.

Hardware :: HAL Not Auto-mounting NTFS Partitions

Jan 26, 2010

I've recently installed Arch on my main PC, and I decided to use Xfce4 desktop environment as appose to gnome that I use on my laptop. Firstly, I had to search round for an icon theme to get any of the icons working (they were all just papers with red crosses in them to start with), which I think is taking lightweight a bit too far :P, but just my opinion.Now i've got that sorted I turned to the problem of auto-mounting partitions. I'm having some trouble getting HAL to auto-mount my NTFS partitions which have my documents and music on. They are NTFS because i've got dual boot windows, and had windows before Archlinux so NTFS was the logical fs type to use. I think HAL is auto mounting dvd's etc. (can't be sure as I aren't in Arch at the minute)I can mount the NTFS partitions manually using:mount -t ntfs /dev/sda(number from 1 through 3) /mnt/sda(1 through 3)

However, I can only access this via root, so I carried out: mchmod scott.scott /mnt/sda(1-3)or something similar and that works fine, so I know they can be mounted successfully. I've tried auto-mounting them using fstab but can't seem to get this working, and I would rather not have fstab auto-mount them, I would rather let HAL sort all that out for me.I have checked that dbus, hal, consolekit and xf86-input-evdev are all installed (although im not sure what xf86-input-evdev does).Has anyone got any ideas why its not auto-mounting the NTFS partitions. My laptop mounts the NTFS windows partition fine using gnome.

CentOS 5 :: Auto Mounting An USB Thumb Drive?

Nov 26, 2009

I would like a USB thumb drive to be automatically mounted whenever I insert the drive into my PC (previously I had been mounting it manually with the 'mount' command). I gave the USB drive a unique label with e2label. I added an entry for it in /etc/fstab. This works in the sense that if I run "mount -a", the drive will be mounted. However, it still isn't completely automatic. Am I missing something? What else do I need to do?
